Unknown OEM Bungie Thing

Hello All,

Does anyone know what the bungie thing is that has a snap on it is used for? It came with the soft top, there are two of them, and is about a 10 inch loop of bungie material with a button snap on it. I've been wondering for a while. Any ideas?

Maybe for the windows, but where would you snap it to?

Thanks

I found the only two "snaps" on the Jeep/JK are to fit the straps on the interior in back so, I assume, and it works, to roll up the back window! Nice for the afternoon drives and not having to remove the window...still, never found it in the Owners manual though...

they are for the back window as stated above, but don't use them......your window will get all kind of scratched up

they snap in by the rear corners of the soft top but inside. i wondered what they were for as well for about 2 months and when i saw someone driving down the road with them in place i figured it out.

Here are just a few thing's that you need to avoid if you don't want your windows to get scratched!
Rolling them up, Laying them down, Wiping them off, Washing them, Not washing them, Taking them out of there original packaging,
Looking at them through them or breathing on them, And last but not least, Bringing them home from the dealership!
If you follow everything on this list you are almost guarantied not to scratch your soft-top windows
If you want to roll them up just do it! It's fun

DIDDO, get some Novus #3 polish (#2 isn't strong enough after 6~ mos of ownership), after each washing, polish w/ Novice and it'll help, ...they DO scratch even sitting STILL!

It's easier to unzip the back window and let it fall into the back area instead of rolling it up.

I guess I'm a *******. How do you roll up the window when it unzips from the top ? I thought those were for securing the soft top down after lowering it ?

Bring the zippers on each side up to the corners of the window.

Zip up the sides of the rear window just past vertical. Roll it up and hook the elastic loops over the ends of the roll. And don't sweat scratches. Sheesh, it's a Jeep!

I just take the rear window out and use the "Clover Patch" window roll. It has layers of felt material to hold the windows.

In my case it will get more scratched up sitting on top of all the crap in the back. I roll it up. If it gets scratched, oh well, it's a Jeep.

I leave mine rolled up when I drop the top. Takes 5 seconds to unzip sides and roll it up. The bar at the bottom is a pita tho. Wish I could leave that off...

Pretty darn cool

I tried it out and BAM, it works great. So convienent when you need to get in the back with the soft top on. Oh and ya it got scratched just by rolling it up, but (in a Brave Heart Irish Voice) "Scriut" its gona happen sooner or later and thats what Plexus polish if for.

Thanks All!
